Meet the most flexible woman on Earth – Julia Gunthel aka Zlata The Contortionist – a 27 years old blonde born in Russia who can contort her body into the most unspeakable poses.
How did it start?
Her incredible story begins when Julia was a little girl who one day realized she had an unusual talent. She could stretch her body in a way other kids couldn’t. At the age of 6 Julia joined a local “circus academy”, and at the age of 16 she moved to Germany with her family where she started her career as a contortionist.
Her ridiculously flexible tendons allow her body bend into the most incredible poses. Zlata admits that one of her favorite tricks is when she is bending backwards at 90 degrees with her hands touching her feet.
This 175 cm tall beauty can easily fit into a 50×50 box. Can you believe it? And since it comes naturally to her, she doesn’t feel any discomfort while contorting into another pose. She’s practicing 3 hours a day and able to stand in a pose for up to 5 minutes.
